I've been told that being+past participle is tenseless.
Even if it's tenseless, there must be some rules for it too. Does it convey the reason for an action, or does it mean that one action is followed by another?
- Being helped by Ram, I did my homework.
(Meaning: I was helped by Ram and I did my homework. Or, because I was helped by Ram, I did my homework. Which meaning does it convey?)
I have also been told that being+adjective is used to show the reason for the action in the main clause.
- Being employed in teachings at a school, I hardly managed time for painting.
(does it show the 'reason'?)
Does "being+past participle" also show the reason?
Being + past participle ---> Being + helped/employed
